A grappling world champion in both 2009 and 2010, she will be fighting in the eight-woman, 115-pound mixed martial arts tournament promoted by the Bellator Fighting Championships. Her first fight will be against Lynn Alvarez at Bellator 24 on Thursday, August 12, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and shown live in the U.S. on Fox Sports Net.
We spoke by phone Tuesday about her combat sports career. In a lengthy and animated discussion, she outlined her intriguing story of how she became involved with mixed martial arts, grappling, and jiu-jitsu, almost by accident. She explained in detail why she is today so passionate about these combat sports, what they mean to her, and why more women should take them up. She discussed her virtual "family" at American Top Team, where she trains. She stressed why she believes that "this is my time" to become successful in mixed martial arts, win this very competitive tournament, and emerge as a star in this sport, and much more.
